If there is a tournament that says guaranteed and say prizepool is 12k. How do you know how much first second third gets they don't say it until all buys ins ads on and so on ?

it doesn't show but you can count it. In the lobby you have how many % gets 1st, 2nd, 3rd and all the paid places. You just need to divide the total pricepool by 100 and then multiply by the percentage the place gets

Example: Pricepool is 15K and 1st gets 15%
15 000/100 = 150*15 = 2,250usd

Yes, that's a rough estimate. The prizes will increase according to how many rebuys and addons there are. Apart from the actual number of players.

Alternatively look for what the average prize pool has been in the last few occasions of that tourney. I'm sure pokerstars have these somewhere on their site.

Hi PIF

It's easy. You take a tournament that is running already, and calculate.

Hey,

First prize is different for every tournament, especially mtt's. The % a player gets for finishing itm is dependent on how many people registered and how much the prizepool is. In your example of the guaranteed, most GTD tournaments on pokerstars actually surpass the GTD amount, so you need to take that into account too.

To see how big #1 prize is, you need to open the lobby of the tournament and click on 'Tournament Info'. There you can see how the money is divided and there you can calculate how much first place will ship. Do keep in mind that, as long as the rebuy/add-on period isn't over and late registration is still running, those numbers will change almost literally every second.

Hope this helps a bit.

All the best,
